Location: Myrtle Beach/Conway, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:5-6 minutes
A bright, orange light appeared off of US 501 in Myrtle Beach near Carolina Forest.

While driving home from work this evening, I was coming over the waterway bridge on US 501. I noticed an orange-colored light appear in the distance, but I originally wrote it off as an incoming commercial flight due to the nearby airport. Then I saw the light "shudder" off and reappear a few moments later just to the right of where it had originally appeared. I watched as it shuddered off a second time. I kept my eyes glued to the sky, and I noticed the light once more about a mile down the road near the Tanger outlet center on 501 near Carolina Forest. Upon arriving home a few minutes later, a close friend of mine contacted me after spotting the same light near her home (not far from where I had last seen it), describing exactly what I saw.
